oooohhh my great god......why has no one else named TTGL

there must be no god if no one thought of it......
it contains all of what you want....even special moves (ie-giga drill breaker!!!)
plus it is the most epic anime ive seen in a long while......


i was in an anime "rut" once...nothing i watched gave me the amazing feeling, that i do desire so much....i saw elfen lied and was completely amazed by it wonder....i thought i could never find another anime like it.....i search and searched for other animes to fill that hole left in my soul......then i was suggested an anime.....gurren lagann
and it was the answer to my prayers....that series filled that once vacant hole in my soul....
plz dear god....watch TTGL...you will not forget it.....



on another topic....along the same lines as what this kid is looking for(action, romance, and comedy)...is there any other anime that is close to as "epic" as TTGL....and when i say epic i want it to be epic...cause now TTGL has left a hole in my soul which respectivly needs to be filled....

Mahoromatic, season2 is a lot better than the first one imo. Has a little of action, a lot of comedy (ecchi), and mm, yeah it has Romance too. Depents maybe a bit which way you look at it, for me it was romance. Ofc watch season1 first even if season2 might be better. ^^

http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=109

Utawarerumono, still one of my favorites. Really good Action and Romance, has some comedy too. Ofc this is just my opinion.

http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl...anime&aid=3427

Maybe Rozen Maiden? It's a bit "strange" maybe, but still fills your categories you wanted.

http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl...anime&aid=2386

And yes, I definitely suggest Fate/stay night for you. It really is one hell of a masterpiece. Have watched it already more than once and playing the game of it atm. ^^ I guess it always has a slot in my memory.

Romance and action are rarely combined well especially if you like the levels of power and special move genre. The audiences rarely line up for a market, I'd speculate.

I'll third the Tsubasa Chronicle. It's got everything you are looking for, a romance that's more developed but also very heart breaking. There's some fighting and named moves, but not to the level of something like Naruto. They never become crutches. As the others have mentioned, it has the same protagonists as Card Captor Sakura, except the focus of the show is on Syaoran rather than Sakura. The first few story arcs are very slow and some of the worst, but as you get further in, it gets better and better, and the recently releases OVAs are amazing, there's nothing else I can say to even attempt to describe them. The ending isn't set in stone as we'll hopefully get more OVAs or even a remake or continuation of the series.

Inuyasha you are right to be skeptical of...it has 167 episodes, 4 movies, and no ending. That being said, it has some elements you might really enjoy, as Inuyasha learns more about fighting he'll gain special attacks and revise how they are used, much like Naruto. Some side characters also progress with attacks and such The romance is lacking and juvenile but present and while more serious then earlier works by the same creator, it does have its funny moments.

Claymore is almost completely devoid of romance, with the elements just sneaking in from time to time, but is an pretty decent action show. It has amazing sword fights when they are animated, however often the monsters are simply black screened, which can be irritating. The main character grows and learns many new tactics and techniques and one thing I really liked about it was the even if someone was more powerful than someone else, a good idea or a moment of distraction could turn the tide of battle. And while many heroes seems to get a "win" all special ability, Claymore's heroine never receives such a move, making the fights some of the most compelling I've seen in any anime.

As others have already mentioned, Fullmetal Panic Fumoffu is absolutely hilarious. It's full of action in the most inappropriate settings which adds to the comedy. The girl is a real toughie when it comes to attempting to straighten the male lead out yet is a severe tsundere.

Shakugan no Shana FTW. It has really good romance that makes you laugh sometimes because of all the jealousy that occurs. The action was ok, at least its there to sharpen the story. The anime is well drawn as well.

Full Metal Panic is also good because great romance and awesome action. You could alsowatch Full metal Panic? Fumoffu if you only want to see more romance then action.

No.
It's a good series, though. The love triangle isn't as played out and annoying as those in some other series, and the action is none too epic, but enough to entertain you. Also, Shana is winning saimoe this year. Don't argue.

[/seconded (actually fourth'd or fifth'd] for both. Full Metal Panic! is split into three seasons, the latter two animated by Kyoto, (So you'll like the animation.) the first and third focusing more on mecha-battle type action with some special skills and such, while the second is more of a comedic romance (though the other two seasons contain a bit of both as well).

I believe I spotted Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Fate/Stay Night somewhere up there as well, and I'll have to second these, too.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is a comedic action with more romance than most other shonen animes, and its battles are litterally the most epic ones I've ever seen in my life. Fate/Stay Night is also quite good, as it's an action/romance anime centering on fantasy elements, which I found quite good, though not excessively so. One of its characters is the origination for the term "Gar" as well, so you'll probably enjoy that. (Though TTGL's Kamina outGars him tremendously.)

And Bleach shouldn't have been mentioned on this, the most romance that occurs in it is probably a onesided love revealed and not really acted upon about 130 episodes in.

Inukami's also been mentioned, it's an entertaining series that may contain a bit of questionable and "unique" content, but it's quite decent overall.

Here are some random helpful orderings where the most prevalent aspect comes first, followed by the secondary elements.
Shakugan no Shana : Moe-Moe-Moe-Romance-Action-Comedy
Full Metal Panic! (+TSR) : Action-Comedy-Romance
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu! : Comedy-Romance-Action
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann : Action-Romance/Comedy (It's a pretty good balance.)
Fate/Stay Night : Action-Romance-Comedy
Inukami! : Ecchi-Comedy-Romance-Action
Ef-A Tale of Memories : Symbolism-Stunning Visuals-Romance-Greatness-Go watch it.

I am sorry for making this so long but i picked animes i personally liked, watched and enjoyed and some "to watch animes" from my list which is 100 aniems long unfortunately lol, bear in mind not all of em focus on the 3 genres, it is xtremely difficult 2 find animes like that as most animes focus on only 2 of those genres but i tried my best 2 find some u may like if ur taste for anime is similar 2 mine


oh yeah ef a tale of memories, enuf said just watch it its dam good and so is clannad i guess, at least watch the OVA its gotta be 1 of the best eps or OVA ive seen in a dam while or ever

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanbun_...ga_Noboru_Sora (short though 6 eps)
ef a tale of memories
clannad
kimi ga nozi ein
kanon
air (not as good)

theyre mainly romance and drama types devoid of all action really so if ur really into havin some action then dont watch those but theyre pretty dam good all brought me 2 tears sadly, miraculously, top 4 ones r the best, since they made me tear up slightly! omfg! ntoe i watched it wen i was peaceful and calm and not burnin with rage that is why though top 4 brought more than a couple tears...

well i strongly recommend

tsubasa chronicles

naruto? lack of much romance really and if u watch it i strongly recommend u just skip the fillers

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagasarete_Airantou i guess so (focus on comedy)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kekkaishi u may want 2 check it out (havent watched enuf of it 2 judge)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maburaho - this is quite good but its mainly comedy and romance i guess not really alot of action

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Ug...eautiful_World -comedy romance mainly not really much action

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elemental_Gelade (cnt comment on it as i barely even watched the 1st ep but it has the genres listed on wiki so)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sh%C5%8Dnen_Onmy%C5%8Dji personally i found this good, there was some comedy cnt remem but it was kinda funny i think action as it is a shonen anime and some romance, more like a typical i like u but i cant, seriously i cant and shes slightly falling for him everytime he saves her ass which becomes qutie frequent i think

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romeo_x_Juliet
not sure just suggesting, supposedly its good

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaze_no_Stigma
u ought 2 watch this, pretty dam funny, theres action, and romance well no blunt romance, shes shy hes well blunt lol

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prism_Ark
i guess this counts, it contains all 3 aspects though the plotline itself is quite weird

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonaut_-The_Resonance-
theres action and theres some comedy and theres romance though i never finished watchin it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosario_%2B_Vampire
theres season 2, it contains all 3 aspects, its qutie lame the plot line and well every1 pratically as been preachin basically anime BS manga quality but were hoping seasons 2 good u may wanna watch it but its just ridiculous and action does not last more than 5 mins if ur lucky

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragnarok_the_Animation
i guess this counts though it is quite lame, bear in mind this came from an ORPG game

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shij%C5..._Deshi_Kenichi
well yeah, its got action alryt martial arts, its pretty dam funny and theres romance but mainly main char drooling over girl and girl just 2 stupid 2 realise and stuff

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Gear
all 3 aspects i recommend u watchin it i personally liked it hoping it 2 start re-airing if not im gonna read the manga at some point, only anime ever done this 2 me >.<

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamoru-...o_Shukufuku_wo!
note:lucky wee kid *beep beep beep* ok now yes its got some ridiculous action cause of the plotline, theres comedy, well romantic comedy 2 be precise and romance well theyre not willingly 2 express their feelings infront of others or 2 openly

Negima, I love that series, it's got some romances because of crushes and then the action, because he's a magical teacher and it's very funny...a bit ecchi, but it's a Ken Akamatsu manga. Also the magical characters have signiture sayings before their spells and in the Del Rey versions of the manga, they give an explanation to each unique incantation, if you're into that. Ongoing series[manga]. For the anime, there are different versions, the manga has the best experience to it, but the original series is less action and the spin-off is mostly action.

DearS, lacking in the action department, but funny and romantic. Good ending.

Gamerz Heaven, it's video game style fighting, it's pretty funny and the romance begins to brew..though I've yet to finish the series...so not sure on the ending. [Not sure if there's an anime to it though]

I don't watch much anime, I'm more into manga...so that's what I've got for anime.
